The Data Comparison tool is accessible under Tools in the hamburger menu. As this tool uses multiple monitoring sites, it is not accessible through a site’s Monitoring Station pop-up menu.
The user may either (1) create a new report or (2) load a previously saved report from a drop-down menu.
First, at least two (2) sensors must be added, detailing:
- Monitoring station
- Color of the sensor in the Data Comparison
- Numbering of each sensor in the chart
- Select whether to invert the axis
The user may then add a calculation (summing, subtracting, or shifting the data) as another data chart to compare with the sensor data.
Under “Advanced Options,” the user may add statistical analysis beneath the visualized data.
Single series statistics options include:
- Absolute Maximum
- Absolute Minimum
- Average Daily Maximum
- Average Daily Minimum
- Average Daily Total
- Standard Deviation
- Point Count
Multiple series statistics options include:
- Average 24-hr Peak Lag
